    25 saum, 25 prc, 25x284 and others - released for public use

    We have asked JGS and Manson to consider every reamer we spec for "Blackjack" spec to be "Released" so that anyone can order them. We just want 25 Caliber to grow and for hunters and shooters to really enjoy the low recoil performance that has...

    Move over 6.5 Creedmoor something New is Coming Thru ...

    Get some guys together and take out a 6 Creed, a 25 Creed, and a 6.5 Creed out to the range and rock steel from 1/2 mile to 3/4 mile. The #'s on paper will start to show themselves downrange. : ) We have an embarrassment of riches in bullet selection and cartridge choice. Still, who doesn't...

    Weatherby's New 6.5 RPM

    Weatherby needs to tool up 257 RPM as well as release 1:8" twist 257 WBY's. They would definitely sell if guys could get their paws on some ammo and rifles.

    .25 cal 131g .330G7 bullet from Blackjack Bullets for you to drool on ...

    there's an entire thread on FB in the 25 Creedmoor (and I guess 25X47L, 25SAUM, 25PRC, Basically Fast Twist 25's) page with a lot of hog, deer, and elk harvest pics and even some videos of dropping hogs. I'll upload some here. No we are not opening the tips up. In short, they kill stuff. How...

    0.401" BSL is nominal. Comparator measurements will not yield 0.401" of course. Part of the logic of the 0.131 FB was that it will work great in magazines which many custom rifle build customers utilize these days over BDL and if a customer wants to long-throat it for a certain rig they can...

    This reamer is setup to work with some of the mag-fed rifles and will work just fine in a BDL style as well. In a true Weatherby Accumark the rounds will need to be loaded 0.020" short of ideal for extraction of loaded rounds, but rebarrelling an accurmark is not as common as a custom build for...

    Long range mule deer rifle

    25x284 or 25-06 at 3140-3225 fps, 25 SAUM at 3380 fps, 257 WBY at 3420+. With the 131 ACE that's going to be flat, hit hard to 1000+, and you won't pay for it in excess recoil. Wind certainty and hit probabilities of these fast 25's are truly impressive.

    1:7" is indeed fast but it will work. I prefer Retumbo as #1 in 25-06 in my testing. 3170 - 3225 fps in 26.5" (Lapua Brass) so the AI should add a bit more. Even at 3175 - 3225 fps, it's nothing to mess around with. I will do the AI next time when this barrel is toast. I have 360 rounds on...

    I'm actually pulling addresses right now. Some of the blanks will ship directly starting early next week. Blake blanks are shooting very very well at LR.

    Our reamers are designed for SA Magazines for mag-fed rifles common to competitions. You can use our reamers made for that setup and then throat out longer if you wish to run long action and maximize capacity.

    Very Interesting. Some do not mind FF but others would rather go straight to the point. 257-280 Ackley sounds pretty cool too. Everything's available and priced reasonably well. Velocities should be in the almost too hot zone, but just right for guys that like some speed. If there was enough...

    The user who chambered his Blake Barrel with the Blackjack Spec 25 SAUM reamer uses 2.945" COAL. There are others but they should be within +/- 0.020". 25 SAUM is a bad hombre.

    Absolutely but these things take a lot more time than you or I want it to!

    Not sure. Probably 3-4 months from the info I have. Nice to see something about high performance 25 cal in addition to the Trigger and Guns & Ammo spread on 25 Creedmoor. The 25-06 AI will definitely launch the 131s at 3200-3275 fps if not more and if you're eyeing the cartridge for a rig, I...

    There's a magazine writer who will be doing a piece on 25-06 AI for 131 ACEs, but no doubt the info reflected on the pages will be lawyer proof - and that should be expected and understood. I may do a 25-06 AI at some point but have been more than happy with standard chambering for a long range...
